Last week, as I was heading to my hotel for a work trip, I received an email from a corespondent at NPR asking to speak with me about the topic of live-language translation. I had recently been quoted in an article published by Chris Smith in Wareable on the topic of hearables and language translation, which is where I assume Andy, the correspondent, came across my ideas and work. Needless to say, I was completely caught off guard, and when I realized he wanted to interview me for NPR’s show, Marketplace, I was pretty elated.
While we chatted for about ten minutes on the phone, I ultimately ended up contributing about 30 seconds to the total story, but regardless, it was one of the coolest moments in my career! Speed ahead to the 19 minute mark and you’ll hear the story begin. Enjoy!
(Side note – in college, for my senior capstone course we were split into teams of 7 and given a client to create a comprehensive marketing and advertising campaign. <y client was NPR – talk about life coming full circle!)
